Frank Buck Strikes Again
Not the usual Frank Buck fare. This is a story, not just animal catching. Frank Buch battles the Japanese (called monkey people by the natives in the film). One must see this film as a product of it's time and not judge the name calling and racial slurs as contemporary. It's not a bad film at all and I enjoyed it. It's funny, exciting and has lots of animals. There was one scene where African animals were running around even though this is supposed to be in East Asia. Stock footage strikes again, but people in the US wouldn't have necessarily known the difference at that time. Worth a watch.
